Lift Off Card Holder

£85.00 GBP

  • Wallet Overview

      Handcrafted in England, the workmanship and leather quality of an ART WRD card wallet mean it will adjust to hold up to 6 credit cards. Women's or men's (they are unisex) - it has such depth of meaning that it's the perfect thoughtful gift. For others - and for yourself.

      Lift Off card holder has been created as a white-hot burst of ‘new’. Artwork by abstract trailblazer and modern icon Kazimir Malevich is combined with the words of a gracefully radical preacher. They inspire us to leap creatively into the future. With this wallet you carry with you a hope-charged marker - a launch button for Lift Off.  

      Lift Off comes in a stunning magnetic closure book-style box and includes an exquisite Exploration Card.

  • The art

    • "Suprematist Composition" by Kazimir Malevich 1915

      Kazimir Malevich pushed beyond Cubism, Picasso and Mattise in his fierce determination to liberate painting from representation into a new abstract realm. If his radical 'resetting of art' painting "Black Square" created in the same year, is abstraction's Big Bang, we can view Suprematist Composition with its thrilling sense of forward creative motion, as the universe forming.

  • The words

    • "The Union" by William Ellery Channing 1829

      William Channing’s words are an electric accompaniment to Malevich’s artwork. Written in 1829 they now read as a prophetic manifesto for the intellectual, social and cultural developments of the 20th century. Or, simply, as a call to strike with courage and hope for a brighter future.

  • Handcrafted in England

    • Wallets are 97x70mm. Our high quality leather adjusts to hold up to 4 credit cards, a driving licence and a few cardboard cards/tickets or 6 credit cards.

      ART WRD card holder leather is created from an ancient Italian technique using 100% natural, non-toxic, tannins from plants. These give the leather an unmistakable warm and brilliant shade that becomes more intense with daily use and the passing of time.

      In Nottingham, England we work with leather printing pioneers. Utilizing their specialist procedures, artworks are re-created like a tattoo, with ink absorbing deeper into the leather, resulting in unparalleled colour vibrancy, image quality and colour durability.

      Just across the Nottinghamshire Wolds in Melton Mowbray our wallets are handcrafted in small batches using traditional methods. This, along with the natural variation in these artisan products, means each one is unique. Expertly made to the very highest quality, they are full-leather (no nylon inners), double-stitched at pressure points and then lined with leather for durability, accessibility, and refinement.

      In short, ART WRD card holders are designed and made to be something you love for a lifetime.
